U.S. Representative Charles Rangel (D-NY)

Embattled Rep. Charles Rangel has spent more than $111,000 on legal bills since July, according to a federal campaign finance report.

A House ethics panel has charged the Harlem Democrat with 13 violations, including using a rent controlled Manhattan apartment as a campaign office and failing to pay taxes on a rental property in the Dominican Republic.

Rangel has vowed to fight the charges. He's expected to face a House trial in the fall.

The congressman's latest campaign filing Friday shows he's spent more than $1.8 million on legal fees related to the case, according to the Daily News. He's paying much of the money out of his campaign account.

Rangel is running for a 20th term in the House and faces several challengers in the Sept. 14 Democratic primary.
